Job Refresh & Indeed Sponsored Jobs 🔄
We recently discovered a minor issue with how job refresh impacts Indeed sponsored jobs. To keep things running smoothly and ensure the best results, we’re making an adjustment to the job refresh schedule. Any jobs set to refresh in August will have the refresh date extended by 30 days. This impacts all customers whether or not you are currently sponsoring a job.
Please note, if you are sponsoring a job directly on Indeed, automatic job refresh should be disabled while your campaign is running to avoid any issues like being accidentally removed or pausing the budget.
